animously decided to feduce the
capital stock from $75,000- to $50,
000, distributing the surplus capit
al aasoog tbe stock holders' Uo
der tbe new banking laws and tbe
changed business conditions of
tbe country the extra stock was
absolutely uonecessary.
A statement of the bank's con
dition at close of business Satur
day night, and made up for tbe
benefit of the stockholders, shows
the baok to be io good fioancial
condition. The loans, amount to
%t 2 l ,403.84; overdrafts $176.80;

A* the close of the meeting, a
resolution was adopted thanking
the officers and loan committee for
their faithful services duriog the
year.
MAY HAVE CREAMERY
Large One Probably will Be Estab
lished in Claiborne Coanty
Within a Year.
The Reveille Iearn6 from a reli
able source that a large creamery
will, in all probability, be located
on the- Natchez branch of tbe Y.
& M. V. railroad in this county
within the next twelve months.
Tbe branch road has been decided
upon because of the accessability
from all directioDS. Tbe creamery
will be largely cooperative in or-*
der to interest dairymen sufficient
ty to insure their patronage.
We belieVe this enterprise would
do more to develop tbe county
than anything else.
HOMES BURGLARIZED
Saveral Residences Entered and
Small Amounts of Money
Secured.
Last Saturday night burglars
entered several homes, in- Port/
Gibson, securing small amounts of
money at some of them. Dr. May's
home was entered and about $10
stolen; about $3 was secured at
Dr. Smith's; 85 cents was taken
from Mr. fobn Heath's pocket,
and attempts were made to enter
the residences of Messrs. Robert
Anderson, Mrnuis, Bagnell, Cason
and batterfiejd and Mrs. Drake.
Blood bounds were brought from
Harriston, but failed to take th.e

TAX COLLECTOR'S OFFICE.
Port Gibson, Miss. , Dec.^23„ 1016.
This is NOT a dun, but a request to >
all who have not done so to pay their
taxes at once.
There is only about a week more in
this year. There are some who have-not
paid yet.
As heretofore stated in this paper*
in past years I have always given ev
erybody the benefit of all the time
that I could legally; and as I work on
a commission and have had the labor and
expense of making up this year's books
I feel that I am clearly and justly|
entitled to the profit on the taxes for
the fiscal year 1916.
So, I will ask all who have not done
so to please pay their taxes at once, *
and before Dec. 30,
Please do not put it off until the
last minute, but pay at once.
Thanking those who have already paid*
and trusting that those who have not
done so will pay immediately, I am,
Respectfully,
1916.
